Baumgartner Flies Helicopter Insanely Close to Drifting ToyotaAugust 7th, 2015
If you are familiar with Red Bull, you are probably familiar with the name Felix Baumgartner. Baumgartner is the man who fell from the stratosphere after jumping from a capsule sponsored by the energy drink company. That jump resulted in the longest free fall in history.
Other than not being afraid of heights, and parachuting like a boss, Baumgartner is also apparently an accomplished helicopter pilot. The Red Bull daredevil recently teamed up with drift driver Jakub Przygoński for some helicopter/GT86 tandem drifting.
As the drift car smokily tears around the track it looks like Baumgartner will land on the roof of the 1,000 horsepower car. Check out the three-minute clip and see what you think. It’s pretty awesome.
